I am purchasing a house without a mortgage in Crook Log. I have been residing for the last 15 years in Crook Log. Conveyancing searches are expensive. As I have knowledge of the road and vicinity intimately should I not bother getting the solicitor to do all the conveyancing searches?
Provided that you do not need a home loan, then almost all of the Crook Log conveyancing searches are non-obligatory. Your solicitor will 'advise', perhaps strongly, that you should have searches completed, but she has a professional duty to take that path of guidance. Do take into account; if you are intend to dispose of the house one day, it will be of relevance to your prospective purchaser what the searches reveal. Sometimes houses with day to day issues can still reveal negative search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Crook Log will provide you some constructive advice here.

I just bought a house at auction in Crook Log. Conveyancing is required. What is next?

An auction property will have a corresponding auction set of papers. This will likely include most,if not all of the paperwork that your lawyer will need. Where you are dealing with leasehold property the conveyancing pack may provide a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and associated conveyancing documentation pertinent to a leasehold property. You must pass this on to the conveyancer working for you at the earliest opportunity. You also need to ensure that you have funds organised to complete the transaction on the set completion date.
